Breaking Through Power
It's Easier Than We Think
Ralph Nader

Interview with Mike Papantonio on "America's Lawyer"

In the U.S., one of the few ways to achieve justice if you're harmed by a product that can kill and cripple is through our civil justice process. These kinds of cases, commonly referred to as tort actions, allow people to receive compensation for injuries or illnesses they've sustained due to corporate negligence or intentional conduct. While modern tort law has been around in the United States since at least the 19th century, only in the last few decades has there been such a huge effort to close the doors to the courthouse for injured victims. Mike Papantonio discusses the future of tort law and big business' efforts to destroy that tort system with Ralph Nader.
